"Piz Daint" and "Piz Kesch": From General Purpose GPU-Accelerated Supercomputing to an Appliance for Weather Forecasting
Abstract:

One of today's biggest challenges for scientific computing is the rapidly developing architectural diversity and heterogeneity in computing systems. Application developers no longer face just concurrency as the major obstacle when scaling simulation codes, but have to adapt software to diverging architecture specific programming models and heterogeneous memory subsystems, requiring significant efforts in refactoring of software and development of new algorithms. In this talk, we will show how CSCS has turned these challenges into opportunity which led to software development collaborations with HPC centers in Europe, USA, and Japan, the deployment of "Piz Daint", a GPU-accelerated supercomputer that is among the top 10 systems worldwide that enabled development.
